More About Total Eclipse Fest 2024 Science Center

Join Great Lakes Science Center, and its partners NASA’s Glenn Research Center and The Cleveland Orchestra, from April 6-8, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day for the Total Eclipse Fest 2024, a three-day celestial celebration at North Coast Harbor in downtown Cleveland.
This outdoor, family-friendly event will feature hands-on science activities, a free community concert performance by The Cleveland Orchestra on Sunday, April 7, food vendors, entertainment, and free eclipse viewing glasses (while supplies last).
NASA experts will be on-site to engage with the public and share ways they study the sun and uses that information to understand its impact on Earth and throughout our solar system, and NASA TV will be broadcasting live from the event Monday, April 8.
Excitement surrounding the 2024 solar eclipse is building around Cleveland due to the region’s location along the path of totality, which means residents and visitors will experience several minutes of darkness when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the sun.
Visit for more information about the event, or Destination Cleveland’s website to plan your visit to Northeast Ohio.
